Syllable, AtheOS AtheOS is a modern, free (GPLed) Operating System written from scratch in C++. A big chunk of the OS is POSIX compliant, supports multiprocessing and it is GUI-oriented (fully OOP). Today we are hosting an interesting interview with the AtheOS creator, Kurt Skauen. Kurt is talking about his views on binary compatibility in future versions, multithreading and the future of his OS in general.

Alencious : well, I was asked a specific question, I answered it, and the thread went on... And I seem to understand that what we are discussing could be fairly relevant for AtheOS anyway ;) martjin : I'm pretty sure that BControl will copy its value to the message. One of the aspects of BControl is to keep track of that 32-bit value for you. And, yeah, the documentation has pretty much always been an issue with BeOS. It was good in the beginning, but I guess that the documentation team couldn't really catch up with the engineering team after they did the paper versions of the BeBook (PR2 and R3 times). --jbq
